^ The 7 will be 100% done at the end of 2015. Phase I of the Second Ave Subway is due to be done in 2016 but it won't be the T line and will just be the Q train running on the new tracks. The separate T train won't be introduced until Phase III is done, and who knows if/when that'll ever be done.

And what was actually renewed? I mean, is this station became better? And does anybody have photos of the station before the renewal?

The station was opened in 1889 and looked decrepit - here are some photos:

I guess they are. Frankly I wish MTA stuck to tokens like the Philadelphia and St Petersburg metros.

A few other stations will have improvements done this year, as set forth in this press release:

http://mta.info/mta/news/releases/?en=130208-NYCT1

The long renovation of Smith-9th station in Brooklyn on the F and G lines is expected to conclude this year:

and what's about renovating stations on manhattan? New York City really needs global renovation of the biggest part of stations. It is really sad, but they are really ugly and dirty ALso it will be good, if the trains were changed on the new ones...

Who's going to pay for the renovation & more rolling stock.? Do you have any idea of the cost of construction in NYC?

As for the rolling stock all the rolling stock of the NYC subway was in service not later than 1999. Some as recent as 2010.

Can't they issue bonds? That's how most infrastructure gets funded. Why would construction costs be much higher than any other densely populated and expensive urban area like London, Paris, Moscow, Tokyo, or Shanghai?

I love the NYC subway but too many of its stations are dirty and downright creepy. It's a little embarrassing for a first rate city to have its subway stations looking like something from the Industrial Revolution. The NYC subway should set a goal to look like the Hong Kong MTR or Singapore MRT in 20 years.

Another problem is the incredible sound from squealing brakes.

I agree with you. Also I think that it is rather disgraceful for New York, the greatest city in the world, to have such dirty and old subway. I hope, that stations will be cleaned and renovated after some years.

I hope not, the NYC subway should retain it's historical character. It's what makes it interesting.

They can retain their historical character, without looking like a crack den.

Are they? Many cities still use them and without any major issues. What's the system in Moscow these days?
